A Conversation with Washington Independent Review of Books

September 26th, 2014 by Darin

Craig L. Gidney recently interviewed me for Washington Independent Review of Books. Come join the conversation.

Darin Bradley’s second novel, Chimpanzee, traffics in dystopian themes, but not in the same way as does the plot-driven The Hunger Games or the allegorical/satirical stories of Margaret Atwood. Instead, his world recalls the more subtle work of Philip K. Dick or Chang-Rae Lee.

NPR Books on Chimpanzee

September 14th, 2014 by Darin

Jason Heller thoughtfully and keenly reviews Chimpanzee for NPR Books:

As with the best dystopian fiction, Chimpanzee taps into many contemporary issues and fears — in this case, everything from the surveillance state to the student-debt crisis. Chimpanzee is a post-collapse novel for those who have become numb to them, and a unique take on a subgenre in sore need of one. The book’s dazzling originality not only helps overcome much of its dryness, it makes it well worth the extra homework.

Christopher East on Chimpanzee

September 12th, 2014 by Darin

Christopher East very kindly reviews Chimpanzee, calling it “a timely, forward-looking, and harrowing vision that muses unflinchingly on the future while riffing off of the present.”

Chimpanzee Audio-play Teaser

August 28th, 2014 by Darin

There have been so many clips that I’ve wanted to share as Grady and I have been putting the finishing touches on the Chimpanzee audio-play, but I’ve restrained myself—after all, I don’t want to give everything away!

But here’s finally one that got past me. Come hear it live on Sept. 9 at the release party at Dan’s Silverleaf here in Denton, TX.

locusonline2008e Tim Pratt reviews Chimpanzee in this month’s issue of Locus: “Bradley’s sophomore effort is just as ambitious as his debut, and his voice is more assured, his characters better delineated. Chimpanzee isn’t cheerful stuff, but there’s a revolutionary zeal, and a belief in the power of the mind to effect change in the world, that provides some light in this otherwise bleak dystopia. I’m excited to see what Totem brings.”
